At 6.5, you are just on the cusp of uric acid control. Because I believe what is happening is that you are moving constantly around the point where urate crystals form (around 6.8). So as soon as the crystals start to dissolve, the uric acid rises again, and new ones might form. For more information, use the search box near the top of each page to Google “Gout Hell”.

Ask your doctor to approve 300mg, to get your level down more. Please don’t give up on the allopurinol, as it is your best chance of controlling the gout.

You will still get some attacks for a few months, but they will reduce in intensity and frequency. Colchicine should help. How much do you take?
